Most widely held works by Roger Penrose
The emperor's new mind : concerning computers, minds, and the laws of physics by Roger Penrose( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The road to reality : a complete guide to the laws of the universe by Roger Penrose( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 2,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Penrose, one of the most accomplished scientists of our time, presents the only comprehensive and comprehensible account of the physics of the universe. From the very first attempts by the Greeks to grapple with the complexities of our known world to the latest application of infinity in physics, The Road to Reality carefully explores the movement of the smallest atomic particles and reaches into the vastness of intergalactic space. Here, Penrose examines the mathematical foundations of the physical universe, exposing the underlying beauty of physics and giving us one the most important works in modern science writing
Shadows of the mind : a search for the missing science of consciousness by Roger Penrose( Book )

55 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Penrose contends that some aspects of the human mind lie beyond computation. This is not a religious argument (that the mind is something other than physical) nor is it based on the brain's vast complexity (the weather is immensely complex, says Penrose, but it is still a computable thing, at least in theory). Instead, he provides powerful arguments to support his conclusion that there is something in the conscious activity of the brain that transcends computation - and will find no explanation in terms of present-day science. To illuminate what he believes this "something" might be, and to suggest where a new physics must proceed so that we may understand it, Penrose cuts a wide swathe through modern science, providing penetrating looks at everything from Turing computability and Godel's incompleteness, via Schrodinger's Cat and the Elitzur-Vaidman bomb-testing problem, to detailed microbiology
The nature of space and time by Stephen Hawking( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 1,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose--disagree on this. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.--From publisher description
Cycles of time : an extraordinary new view of the universe by Roger Penrose( Book )

24 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking book providing a new take on three of cosmology's most profound questions: What, if anything, came before the Big Bang? What is the source of order in our universe? What is the universe's ultimate future? Current understanding of our universe dictates that all matter will eventually thin out to zero density, with huge black holes finally evaporating away into massless energy. Roger Penrose--one of the most innovative mathematicians of our time--turns around this predominant picture of the universe's "heat death," arguing how the expected ultimate fate of our accelerating, expanding universe can actually be reinterpreted as the "Big Bang" of a new one. Along the way to this remarkable cosmological picture, Penrose sheds new light on basic principles that underlie the behavior of our universe, describing various standard and nonstandard cosmological models, the fundamental role of the cosmic microwave background, and the key status of black holes. Intellectually thrilling and accessible, Cycles of Time is another essential guide to the universe from one of our preeminent thinkers"--Provided by publisher

Fashion, faith, and fantasy in the new physics of the universe by Roger Penrose( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can fashionable ideas, blind faith, or pure fantasy possibly have to do with the scientific quest to understand the universe? Surely, theoretical physicists are immune to mere trends, dogmatic beliefs, or flights of fancy? In fact, acclaimed physicist and best-selling author Roger Penrose argues that researchers working at the extreme frontiers of physics are just as susceptible to these forces as anyone else. In this provocative book, he argues that fashion, faith, and fantasy, while sometimes productive and even essential in physics, may be leading today's researchers astray in three of the field's most important areas--string theory, quantum mechanics, and cosmology.... The result is an important critique of some of the most significant developments in physics today from one of its most eminent figures."--Dust jacket

En écho aux fameux débats entre Einstein et Bohr sur les bizarres implications de la théorie quantique, cet ouvrage à deux voix donne l'occasion d'assister à une clarification des grandes questions qui touchent l'avenir de la physique et de l'astrophysique. Hawking, qui se dit positiviste, et Penrose, qui se veut réaliste, s'opposent ici dans un débat sans concession

Errol Morris (The Fog of War) turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs. An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris's documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking's body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination
